Libraries and Chunky Books

February 27, 2010

So, I am notoriously bad for starting challenges and not finishing them. I think that assigning myself two very doable, nonspecific ones early in the year might lead me to some, if limited, success.

The two I’m trying my luck with are long and, well, chunky, but again, they’re general so they will be covered by what I usually read.

The first is a fairly obvious one. Of the books I read this year, 25-100 should be from the library.

This is J Kaye’s 2010 Support Your Local Library Challenge with rules here:

1. Anyone can join. You don’t need a blog to participate.

–Non-Bloggers: Post your list of books in the comment section of the wrap-up post. To learn how to sign up without having a blog, click here.

2. There are four levels:

–The Mini – Check out and read 25 library books.

–Just My Size – Check out and read 50 library books.

–Stepping It Up – Check out and read 75 library books.

–Super Size Me – Check out and read 100 library books.

(Aim high. As long as you read 25 by the end of 2010, you are a winner.)

3. Audio, Re-reads, eBooks, YA, Young Reader – any book as long as it is checked out from the library count. Checked out like with a library card, not purchased at a library sale.

4. No need to list your books in advance. You may select books as you go. Even if you list them now, you can change the list if needed.

5. Crossovers from other reading challenges count.

6. Challenge begins January 1st thru December, 2010.

7. When you sign up under Mr. Linky, put the direct link to your post where your library books will be listed. Include the URL to this post so that other viewers can find this fun challenge. If you’d prefer to put your list in the sidebar of your blog, please leave your viewers the link to the sign up page. Again, so viewers can join the challenge too.

The second is:

Definition of a Chunkster: 450 pages or more.

My goal is to read three over the next year.

Wish me luck! I’m headed to the library to cover ground in both…
